Removing Timestamp

This script removes the timestamp imprinted on photos by digital cameras.
A friend had more than 400 photos with such a timestamp so I tried to get rid of it in a fast way. The script is a little quick'n'dirty but in most cases it's doing the job just fine. Better than I thought in the first place...

The procedure:

  1. select the area with the timestamp (manually but optional)
  2. select the color of the timestamp in your selection
  3. add alpha channel to layer (transparent background)
  4. remove the timestamp

60's Text Effect Script (Rev. 2.2)

This script will create psychedelic 1960's text. I created this script from my tutorial of the same name. I didn't merge the layers in the script, as I did in the tutorial, because you can change the blend modes of the different layers for different appearance.

Rev. 2.0 - added compatability for Gimp 2.4.x

Rev. 2.1 and 2.2 - Added gradient controls.

It can be used to draw star-like images (see jpg below)
Save the script in your scripts folder, you will find it under Layer -> Transform -> repeat rotation.

L-system & turtle graphic

These scripts are mainly aimed at generating L-system fractals using turtle graphics. As an added bonus, shapes (not fractals) and turtle trails too.
L-system (or shapes, or turtle trails) can be drawn using different tools, including path, and centered/scaled to image/layer/mask.

Save both scripts in your scripts folder, you will find it under Filters -> Render -> Turtle graphics.
